Europe's favourite lottery in a nutshell
Odds of Winning EuroMillions Prizes
EuroMillions gives you a better chance of winning a prize than any other lottery in Europe, thanks to its 13 different prize tiers. Match all five numbers and both Lucky Stars to hit the jackpot, at odds of 1 in 139,838,160. Europe's favourite lottery also gives you overall odds of 13:1 of winning a prize.
EuroMillions currently has a minimum jackpot of approximately €15 million and a maximum jackpot capped at €190 million, making EuroMillions by far the largest lottery prize in Europe. EuroMillions also has annual Superdraws several times a year, automatically boosting the jackpot to €100 million.

EuroMillions was founded in 2004 by the national lottery operators of Britain, France and Spain. It later expanded to other countries making it a truly trans-national, trans-European lottery.
The following year Ireland gave EuroMillions its first high-profile win when Dolores McNamara from Limerick won €115.4 million in July 2005. She rapidly became the first of many EuroMillions celebrities.
In 2012 the maximum jackpot ceiling was capped at €190 million. This amount has since been won twice. First, in 2012, by Adrian and Gillian Bayford from England and later by an anonymous winner from Castelo Branco, Portugal, in 2014.
